    One thought on “Two eggs, please.”

    1. Read this to the PreK 4s for their restaurant theme at TEC. They requested it. I enjoy the different, but the same theme. 12/9/14Selected at PJ Story Time. Went over okay, but younger siblings were confused. (Plus book was falling apart.)

    2. Two Eggs, please is a book written by Sarah Weeks. This book is about many different people coming into a diner and ordering eggs. People order eggs in many different ways, but in the end they are all the same because they are all eggs. This is good representation of showing how people can look different or like different things but in the end we are all the same. We are all human beings just like everyone ordered eggs just in different ways. This book was very colorful to get children's attenti [...]

    3. Delicious diner art complements a simple story about similarities and differences in food choices and the in the anthropomorphic animals who make them.

    4. In this story, people are compared to eggs. Like eggs, which can be prepared in many different ways, people come with many different traits and personalities. However, before eggs are cooked, they start out very much alike. They may be different colors or sizes on the outside but when you crack them open, they are all alike on the inside. The story takes place in a diner where many very different diners (in this story they are actually depicted as animals to highlight their differences) come in [...]

    5. Two eggs, please. by Sarah Weeks, illustrated by Betsy Lewin, depicts hungry customers who all want eggs, though each prepared a bit differently. Lewin's colorful, humorous illustrations have a cartoon look that will appeal to children. The animal characters are varied and appealing, as is the diner setting. This takes the idea of a foxy waitress to a new level. My favorite images are waitress and cake, rat & diner, policemen order, ram and gator order, patron shot, eggs coming up, and final [...]

    6. I really like this book because it is one those classic children’s book. It has lots of great colors, animals being depicted as people and easy literature. There was not much literature in this book but when it was there you could tell exactly what was going on. When it came to the art I like how the book seemed like a cartoon. Children normally enjoyed cartoons so they would have an easy time following the book it also had different animals in the book and I think that is important because ch [...]

    7. I like the simplicity of this book. Animals sit at a counter at the diner and order two eggs, please. One wants them sunny-side up, one hard-boiled, one poached. Hmmm, different, they all think. Not bad, or ew, or weird, or wrong. Just different, but the same, too. Love when authors and illustrators don't use sledgehammers to get a message across - and any book with layer cakes under glass covers and spinny stools at a diner counter is going to feel welcoming to me. Try this with early elementar [...]

    8. I did not enjoy this wordless book for more than half of it, but as I got closer to the end I began to see what the author was doing. This would be a great book for preschoolers to third grade. This book allows you to relate eggs to people. It does so by having different animals all order eggs, but in different ways. This relates to people because we are all made with the same organs(besides the differences between boys and girls), but each person has a different look, and personality. We're all [...]

    9. A late night diner gets a lot of traffic in the wee hours of the morning. Everyone that enters orders two eggs, but how they want their eggs prepared is different. The fox waitress serves a rhino two sunny-side up eggs (and coffee—I noticed everyone gets coffee), a stork two scrambled eggs and a python two raw eggs, plus many of the other varieties of prepared eggs. The illustrations are fun and colorful, the text is easy to read and simple, and the story itself is a good springboard for discu [...]

    10. Two Eggs, Please features a wide audience of critters who visit a diner and order eggs. Each egg order is different, but the eggs themselves are the same. Different and same are highlighted in this brief story. It's fun and bright and offers the reader an opportunity to play with a wide range of voices for each character and their order.Theme: Bacon & EggsAdditional themes: food, restaurants, the number two, same/differentReviewed from a library copy.

    11. A very simple picture book that provides a visual on how some things may seem very different on the outside, but on the inside it is really the same. Each customer that comes into this diner, is looking to place an order for two eggs. Some want it scrambled, others raw, hard boiled, soft boiled, etc. Great way to start a conversation with young kids about how some things can be very different, yet the same at the same time.

    12. This entertaining picture book is about how things can be the same but also be different. The setting is a late night diner where all the animals are getting together to order two eggs each. But the style of eggs that each animal orders is different. (Snake ordering two eggs "raw" is a surprise!) Sarah's use of words is imaginative and humorous. She also gets her point across. When Fox (the waitress) is yelling all the orders to Bear (the chef) it is like an energetic poem! Great tale!

    13. This book comes from one teacher's idea--pass around a brown and white egg, have class discuss what they see. Then she cracked the eggs--the idea being looks different (and similar) on the outside, very much the same on the inside. Great lesson here. I love the teacher's idea, and I liked the book.

    14. Animal friends find out how good it is to sit together and eat eggs for breakfast, even if everyone eats eggs differently. This book reminds us that we're all at God's Table, and everyone's invited to eat.

    15. Great lesson in this can be the same and be different! Everyone ordered eggs, but everyone ordered them different. Great illustrations to catch the readers attention and very cute message.

    16. This book was very short. It was all in dialouge. It was showing how you can have eggs in so many different ways. Showing that even people who live in the same place they can always want something a different way. It would be for the younger grades in school.

    17. Everyone in the restaurant ordered eggs, but everyone ordered it in different ways! People were compared to eggs in this book. They're all eggs and animals but they may look different on the outside. Very delightful illustrations, with a great message.

    18. This book is a quick read, and would be used in first or second grade classrooms. This book has all kinds of different characters who come together in a diner to order eggs. The concept of this book is that everyone likes their eggs different, but no matter how you cook them an egg is an egg.

    19. Beautiful book read to our grandsons. Looks at differences and similarities when in truth, we are the same on the inside.

    20. This is great. Such a short, simple book but it has a strong message of tolerance and acceptance. I'm going to use this to launch my "tolerance" theme with 8th graders this year.

    21. Cute story about accepting differences. Great art from the illustrator of Click, Clack, Moo.Recommended for younger & beginning readers.

    22. Very simple book, would be an easy read aloud. Good repetition for students who are developing their reading skills.

    23. [from Quinn] So many different ways to eat eggs! Too bad, I don't like any of them!! (Although, I am a fan of cracking eggs.

    24. Helps illustarte that although we are all "different" we do have similarities. Could be used to help with bullying.

    25. I love this book, I think it is adorable. It lives in my collection of children's books that I feel are important to read to kids.

    26. 3.75 starsWho would have thought that one egg, could be prepared so many waysdifferent, the same!Interesting bookskes me wants dinner!

    27. This book is a well illustrated way to teach children how things can be the same yet different. The book contains very few words, most of them simple, and would be ideal for beginning readers
